Meeting with fellow military people is a plus. Nice bar and reasonable prices. They also have special venues on specific days/evenings. I'm retired air force so it really appeals to me.

For veterans it's an awesome place to reflect. For non military it is a great place to see history. It is a place you can learn about reality.

We were invited for a birthday party and had never been there before. The drinks are inexpensive and the decor is not the greatest but the service and the bartender's attitude made up any faults.

We went to see the travelling Vietnam Wall that came through our area. Very somber, but this place put the focus on history & sacrifice.

This memorial consisted of the top/sail of a real submarine and 2 helicopters. We loved that they painted the concrete base below the submarine black to look like the submarine was ascending or descending. Thought it would be great if the rocks were blue! This...More
